Hexenjager are a band from France that plays a mixture of 70's inspired doom metal and sludge and this is a review of their self released 2015 demo.
A very heavy bass guitar sound starts off the album along with some horror movie samples and a minute later the music starts adding in more of a retro doom metal sound and when vocals are added into the music they are done in more of a clean style and both of their tracks are very long and epic in length.
You can hear a great amount of melody in both the riffs and guitar solos and the songs also bring in atmospheric and psychedelic sound at times and while the music is heavily rooted in the early 70's doom metal sound the elements of sludge gives the music more of a heavier and modern sound and both of the songs stick to a slow musical direction.
Hexenjager plays a musical style that is very heavily rooted in the early 70's and 80's style of doom metal which they also mix in with a touch of psychedelia and the heaviness of sludge to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover are written in French and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Hexenjager are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Murk". 8 out of 10.
